Masseria Torre Coccaro
Babies and children of all ages welcomed.
Superior Rooms and the Junior Suite are large enough to accommodate a family of four with ease. Deluxe Junior Suites have a separate living room.
During the summer season (1 June to 15 September), the Mini Club at this child-friendly hotel's nearby beach is open from 10am–1pm and 3pm–5pm and caters for children aged three to 10 years.
Children can let off steam in the hotel's garden, or in the surrounding farmland (the Masseria is a working farm). There are bikes to borrow free of charge (but no baby seats or children's helmets), and the beach is close by. The hotel also has a private yacht for guests' use on request. During summer, the Paradise for Children programme teaches young guests about the ecology of the local area. At Easter, little Smiths can take part in the 'Easterolympics', a full day of activities including making pizza and chocolate eggs and outdoor fun on the estate's long beach.
The large pool has a shallow end and a lifeguard in attendance from 8am to 6pm. There are a few armbands and rubber rings available; it's best to book these in advance.
Children allowed in the restaurant for all meals. There isn't a children's menu, but the kitchen will prepare specific meals on request, and is happy to provide child-friendly packed lunches, and heat milk and baby food.
Available day and night for €15 an hour; give as much notice as possible.
No need to pack
Cots, high chairs and car seats available, as well as armbands for water babies.
The nearby Zoosafari amusement park is a winner with children, with rollercoaster rides and all kinds of animals, including dolphins and elephants. The hotel's Aveda spa is an adult-only zone, so make use of the hotel's babysitting service and indulge.
